                             4. Poor Boy Shuffle
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

No Bass

The song only has guitar, harmonica and a little bit off drumming. What little bit of 
bass is in the song is extremely hard to hear

                             5. Feelin' Blue
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Country Bass
E-mail: aaron.white8@education.nsw.gov.au

Tuning: Standard

The Entire Song is just D so just fiddle with the D blues scale throughout the song

This works pretty well for the songs but just go crazy with the blues scale and get some 
of your own funky little riffs into it
